Hi, Can diabetic person consumes fig [anjeer] to control high BP and blood glucose, due to its high potassium contents? If yes, what is the quantity & before meals or after?

Hi,

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Figs contain fiber and some vitamins as well as a few mineral like in most fruits. Plus a 100 g of figs also give 16 g of sugar. Whether figs will help in controlling BP effectively is not clear. Since most fruits have vitamins, minerals, fibers and antioxidants, they are good. Even in a diabetic person also fruits are good, may not increase blood glucose much. But whether they control BP or reduce blood glucose is difficult to answer. Best is to use specific drugs, diet control and exercise. Plus take fruits. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose 106 mg, and 120 mg, does fall in the pre-diabetic category. But there is also a condition called Impaired Fasting Glucose Intolerance. PP glucose & HbA1c% both are fine. Hence he is not having even prediabetes. But better to check his fasting and PP once a year or so. Another important aspect is that he should not become over weight. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels show that you have uncontrolled diabetes. Which needs urgent treatment with appropriate drugs. Plus there has to be a properly planned diet and regular exercise for over 1 hour a day. Plus you will have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and bakery items. Also avoid foods made from maida. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. For specific medicines either contact your local doctor or come in a private (paid consultation) conversation, then only I will be able to prescribe the drugs needed. It is essential to control blood glucose effectively to avoid complications of diabetes. Thanks.

Hello sir, I have hashimoto thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. Is there permanent treatment available in ayurveda or homeopathic.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Thyroid peroxidase (TPO), an enzyme normally found in the thyroid gland, plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormones. A TPO test detects antibodies against TPO in the blood. In autoimmune disorders, your immune system makes antibodies that mistakenly attack normal tissue. Normal TPO is 35 IU/mL Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism. Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism. Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs. The normal range of TSH levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services.

Infertility is defined as a condition where a woman is unable to conceive a child despite having 1-2 years of unprotected sexual intercourse with a male partner but help for conception can be sought after 6 months of trying pregnancy. In over half the cases, infertility is usually with the male partner which is characterised by a low sperm count. Infertility causes social anxiety as well as relationship problems among couples and can severely affect the self-esteem of the person.

Symptoms

Male infertility tends to have certain tell tale signs some cases or no apparent reasons in other cases. In some cases, male infertility occurs due to underlying medical conditions like genetic problems, widened veins around the testicle or hormonal imbalances and some of the symptoms could be like:

  1. Recurrent problems during sexual intercourse due to severe pain in the testicular zone.
  2. You might lose your ability to smell due multiple instances of infections of the respiratory system.
  3. There might be a reduction in the body hair.
  4. Abnormal sperm count.
  5. Lack of sexual desire

Causes

  3. mental anxiety
  4. excessive alcohol consumption
  5. diabetes or as a
  6. side effect of radiation therapy
  7. prescribed medications to treat other existing ailments within the body

Diagnosis and Treatment

The infertility of the male partner is usually diagnosed by your specialist by evaluating the medical condition and past histories of surgical procedures, sexual practices etc. Infertility can also be diagnosed by analysing the semen. The test for Semen Analysis should be done after 3 days of abstinence and the sample should be given in the lab.

5 Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Uterine Cysts!

5 Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Uterine Cysts!

Uterine cysts are a type of cysts or tumours, which grow in the uterus. This is prevalent in women when they are near their childbearing years. Uterine cysts have some typical symptoms, which would let you know when to consult a medical practitioner for further help. It would cause excessive bleeding for a long duration of time. There is bleeding from the uterus in between your menstrual cycles. At times, it becomes very difficult to empty your bladder and irritation and discomfort are caused. It also leads to constipation. These are frequent symptoms, which accompany uterine cysts. These types of cysts are almost always non-cancerous, but it is beneficial to take an expert advice on that matter. Homeopathy is a great option to treat such cysts.

Homeopathy is becoming increasingly popular throughout the entire world. Now it is time to prove to the world what homeopathy can offer in surgical diseases. Homeopathic medicines cannot take the place of surgery but can be of great help to the patients who do not want to go for surgery or cannot be operated upon due to various medical reasons. There are specific medications to treat cysts through homeopathy.

Some of them are:

  1. Calcarea Carbonica: This medicine is suitable for those who bleed profusely during their menstrual cycle. Such excessive bleeding causes shivers and shrills in them, making them more prone to anaemia. In fact, excessive bleeding also influences their fertility cycles. This medicine is administered on overweight women who suffer from uterine cysts.

  2. Thlaspi Bursa Pastoris: This is prescribed to women who experience frequent menstrual cycles within short intervals. In fact, one does not even recover from the shock of the previous cycle and the new one starts. It is usually accompanied by excessive pain in the uterus. This medicine not only treats the cysts, but also the frequent period cycles and pain in the uterus.

  3. Trillium Pendulum: At times, due to excessive bleeding from the uterus, the patient suffers from fainting spells. Such cysts are also characterised by bright red blood flow during the menstrual cycle. These are the two main symptoms to administer this medicine on the individual.

  4. Fraxinus Americana: Apart from irregular periods with pain in the uterus, it is also followed by breaking down spells. One experiences cramps in the feet during this type of cyst. In such conditions, the best natural homeopathic therapy that can be administered is Fraxinus Americana.

  5. Calcarea Fluorica: This is a common medicine which is given to those patients who have extremely large tumours. These tumours are also characterised by their unique hardness.

Uterine cysts are a common problem in women and can be treated effectively. One needs to be alert about the symptoms and must immediately report to a specialized homeopathic practitioner for an effective administration of medicines, which may lead to a successful cure.

PCOS - Lifestyle Changes That Can Help!

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology

PCOS - Lifestyle Changes That Can Help!

PCOS, also known as Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome, is a clinical condition in which women’s sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone are out of a proper balance. This leads to multiple growths of ovarian cysts (benign masses in the ovaries). PCOS causes problems with women’s menstrual cycle, pregnancy. It also causes cardiac problems and problems in appearance. Though the exact cause for developing PCOS is still unknown known, doctors say Genetics play an important role in it. Overproduction of the hormone androgen may be another factor behind developing PCOS.

Lifestyle changes are the keys to living a healthy life. This is a commonly known fact though we hardly tend to stick to it. In cases of PCOS, lifestyle modifications are of severe importance. A healthy lifestyle is considered as the main step in managing PCOS. In the case of PCOS patients, lifestyle modifications help in reducing insulin resistance, improving other hormonal problems, improving menstrual cycle, improving fertility and preventing further long-term complications.

Here are some tips to living a healthier life for PCOS patients, to get you started with!

Dietary Changes: Bringing about a change in your regular diet is very important if you are a PCOS patient. Low carbohydrate diets, specifically with complex carbohydrates, which are high in fibre are recommended for PCOS patients. High fibre carbohydrates include whole grain bread and cereals, whole wheat pasta, barley, brown rice, beans. Junk foods are to be avoided as much as possible. The intake of simple carbohydrates is to be limited and that of complex carbohydrates is to be done. The Carbohydrate and Glycemic Index (GI) in carbohydrates is important because carbohydrates with a low GI produce lower glucose levels and insulin levels after consumption, in comparison with carbohydrates with a high GI. Good food choices and a consistent eating pattern throughout the day will lead to a more even pattern of blood glucose levels.

Weight check: For PCOS patients keeping the weight under check is primarily important. Weight loss can reduce both insulin and androgen levels and may restore ovulation. No single specific dietary approach is best, but losing weight by cutting down on your daily calorie intake may help with polycystic ovary syndrome, especially if you're overweight or obese.

Physical activity: Regular exercise seems to be most effective in improving insulin resistance, which is of great significance in PCOS as this leads to many further complications. Regular physical activity helps to reduce androgen, improve insulin resistance. It also helps to regulate the menstrual cycle, induce ovulation, improve fertility, increase energy levels and improve self-esteem.

Thus, lifestyle modifications reduce complications related to PCOS to a great extent and help you in living a healthy, happy life.

Please check your sugar levels and go for review. It is important to control the sugar levels. Please try to exercise every day at least for a few minutes in the beginning. Later you can increase the duration for exercise. Eat only healthy food (better if homemade) and add fruits and vegetables everyday. You can also take Homeopathy which can be taken along with the regular medicines. Homeopathy being holistic in nature, tries to bring natural healing without any side-effects. A detailed consultation (case study is important to select the remedy that suits your constitution) will be helpful. You can contact me if needed.

Thayaraid Ka Upachar Ayurveda Se - थायराइड का उपचार आयुर्वेद से

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Lakhimpur Kheri
Thayaraid Ka Upachar Ayurveda Se - थायराइड का उपचार आयुर्वेद से

आयुर्वेद में तमाम रोगों का इलाज उपलब्ध है. आयुर्वेद से इलाज का एक अतिरिक्त फायदा ये है कि इससे सफल इलाज होकर सेहत तो ठीक होता ही है साथ में कई और आवाश्यक तत्व हमें मिल जाते हैं. थायराइड को अपनाना बहुत ही आसान और तरीके बहुत सरल हैं. थायराइड के इलाज के भी कई तरीके आयुर्वेद और घरेलु उपचारों में बताया गया है. इन तरीकों के कई फायदे हैं. सबसे बड़ा फायदा है कि ये आसानी से उपलब्ध है और इसका कोई साइड इफेक्ट भी नहीं है. तो आइए जानें कि थायराइड के उपचार के लिए कौन-कौन से आयुर्वेदिक तरीके उपलब्ध हैं-

1. मुलेठी
थायराइड में थकान का अनुभव जल्दी ही होने लगता है. इस थकान को दूर करने में मुलेठी बहुत कारगर है. इसमें थायराइड ग्रंथि को संतुलित करने वाला और थकान को उर्जा में बदलने वाला तत्व पाया जाता है. और इस प्रकार मुलेठी से थायराइड में आपको लाभ मिलता है.
2. जूस
थायराइड के मरीजों को कुछ फलों जैसे कि संतरा, अंगूर का रस, नारियल पानी, चुकंदर, अन्नानास, गाजर, सेब, पत्तागोभी आदि का जूस लगातार कुछ दिनों तक देने से उन्हें आराम मिलता है. यदि आप इन फलों को कच्चा खाना चाहें तो कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं.
3. साबुत धनिया
थायराइड के बीमारी में साबुत धनिया भी बहुत काम आता है. इसके लिए एक ग्लास पानी में दो चम्मच साबुत धनिया रात में भिगोकर रख दें. सुबह इसे मसलकर तब तक उबालें जब तक कि पानी एक चौथाई न रह जाए. इसके बाद थोड़ा ठंडा होने पर इसे खाली पेट पी लें. और फिर पानी में नमक डालकर गरारे करें. लगातार इस उपचार को करने से थायराइड से निजत मिल सकता है.
4. साबुत अनाज
साबुत अनाज से बने खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन भी आपको थायराइड से दूर रखने में आपकी मदद करता है. क्योंकि साबुत अनाज में फाइबर, विटामिन्स और प्रोटीन आदि प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता है. ये सभी मिलकर थायराइड को बढ़ने से रोकते हैं.
5. आटा
थायराइड में राहत के लिए आटा भी काम आता है. इसके लिए 5 किलो आटे के साथ 1 किलो बाजरे का आटा और एक किलो जौ का आटा मिलाकर इससे बनी रोटियां खाने से आपको काफी हद तक थायराइड से निपटने में मदद मिलेगी.
6. गो-मूत्र
सुबह उठकर फ्रेश होने के बाद साफ़ कपड़े से गोमूत्र को छान लें. फिर इसे सुबह खली पेट लें. इसे लेने के डेढ़ घंटे तक आपको कुछ नहीं लेना है. इस दौरान ये ध्यान रखें कि आपको फास्ट फ़ूड और तैलीय भोजन से दूर रहना है. आप पायेंगे कि इससे भी थायराइड ठीक हो रहा है.
7. अदरक
सभी घरों में प्रयोग किया जाने वाला अदरक में मौजूद गुण आपको थायराइड से लड़ने में मदद करते हैं. अदरक में मैग्नीशियम और पोटैशियम ही वो तत्व हैं जो थायराइड से आपको मुक्ति दिलाते हैं. इसके आलावा अदरक में एंटी-इन्फ्लेमेटरी गुण भी होता है जो कि थायराइड का प्रभाव कम करके उसे फंक्शनल बनाता है.
8. कुछ अन्य जड़ी-बूटी
काला अखरोट, बाकोपा, निम्बी बाम, अश्वगंधा, इचिंसिया, मुलेठी, अदरक, गेहूं का ज्वारा आदि सभी जड़ी-बूटी थायराइड के उपचार में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाते हैं. लेकिन इनके उपयोग से पहले आपको किसी आयुर्वेद के डॉक्टर से संपर्क कर लेना चाहिए.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting 100 mg & PP 81 mg look absolutely normal levels. However HbA1c% 6.44, looks closer to being a diabetic. Between 5.7 to 6.4 % is considered as pre-diabetic. Similarly Fasting 101 to 125 mg & PP 141 to 199 mg is considered as pre-diabetic. Which means there is a possibility that the person can progress to be a diabetic if no care is taken. Precautions needed are dietary restrictions, weight control and regular exercise. Thanks.

Effects Of Sugar On Your Skin!

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Patna
Effects Of Sugar On Your Skin!

Almost every person salivates over desserts and sweets. One does not need a special occasion to get their sweet tooth going. While the lip smacking sugary delight might impress the taste buds, it is sure to affect the health in a big way. If you thought that sugar was only bad for your waistline and general health, then you need to know that it is equally harmful for your skin. In fact, it can lead to serious dermatological conditions.

Harmful effects of sugar on the skin

A lot of what we eat reflects on our body externally. A number of internal changes can influence the external appearance of the body. Excessive intake of carbohydrates, starch and sugar can have an adverse effect on the skin. It can also accelerate the ageing process. But what triggers these complications needs to be understood and discussed in detail.

Carbohydrates can be simple or complex. Simple carbohydrates (cake, bread; to name a few) break down and convert to glucose rapidly. Increased glucose level implies increased insulin level, and causes inflammation, which affects the whole body. The enzymes produced during inflammation breaks down important proteins, namely elastin and collagen, leading to wrinkles and saggy skin.

Acne problems mainly arise from Glycation (the process through which digested sugar attaches permanently to the collagen). Glycation plays a significant role in accelerating the ageing process.

Complex carbohydrates, on the other hand, is good for health. When ingested, complex carbohydrates break down at a much slower rate. As a result, there is no abnormal increase in the insulin level.

Corrective measures to check the harmful effects of sugar on the skin:

With a little care and preventive measures, the deleterious effects of sugar on the skin can be minimised.

  1. Supplement your diet with foods rich in antioxidants. Lean proteins, fibrous foods and diets rich in good fats are highly recommended. Include beans and nuts that have low glycemic value in your diet. Drink plenty of water.
  2. Food items containing high amount of saturated fats (cheese, ice creams, fried foods; to name a few), and with high glycemic value should be strictly avoided.
  3. Do not compromise with your sleep. A sound sleep and a stress-free life is the mantra to a glowing and youthful skin.
  4. Practice meditation and yoga diligently. The rewarding and positive outcomes will leave you in awe.
  5. Do not skip your meals or indulge in overeating. Have small servings at regular intervals.
